We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite holy grail skincare products and y'all delivered! Here are the products they can't live without.
1.Biossance Squalane Oil hydrates parched skin and locks in moisture to keep your epidermis feeling soft, smooth, and plump. It may also help even your complexion, reducing redness and irritation.
3.Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil rejuvenates skin with a cocktail of nutrients like marula seed oil (duh!), vitamin E, omega fatty acids, and other antioxidants. The results = smoother, bouncier, more even skin without the greasy residue!
4.Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant resurfaces the skin, brightening hyperpigmentation and acne scars, clearing pores, and improving skin texture. If you're just dipping your toes in the chemical exfoliant pool (first of all, welcome!!), start by applying this every other day or a few times a week to build up a tolerance and not irritate your skin.
5.Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask tackles dry, dull, uneven, and textured skin overnight with a potent mixture of vitamin C, squalane, hyaluronic acid, and other antioxidants. Your first thought when you look in the mirror the next morning will be, "Damn, I look good!!!"
6.Dr. Jart+ Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment reduces redness (it has a green tint in the pot and green and red are opposites on the color wheel so they neutralize each other out...remember elementary art class?) and protects your skin from environmental aggressors (like the sun!).
9.And since we just mentioned it, CeraVe Moisturizing Cream latches on to moisture and pumps the skin full of ceramides, which are molecules that help make up the skin barrier. Throw in some hyaluronic acid and you've got the recipe for 24 hours of hydration!
11.Supergoop! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 doubles as both a skin shield and a primer with a subtle shine. It's made with hyaluronic acid (for moisture), vitamin B5 (for softness), sea lavender (for antioxidant protection), and cocoa peptides (for blue light damage).
12.Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel Cream melts into the delicate skin around your eyes, hydrating it intensely and locking in moisture. The gel-cream formula absorbs quickly and may help you look like you actually got a full eight hours of rest. Reviewers say it even helps calm irritated skin!
13.No7 HydraLuminous Water Concentrate drenches your skin with moisture yet doesn't feel heavy or suffocating. You can also consider your skin protected from pollution particles thanks to its Pollution Shield Technology.
15.Bio-Oil treats a variety of issues, including uneven skin, stretch marks, and acne scars. It helps your body retain moisture (bye bye dry skin!) and absorbs into the skin fast so you won't feel greasy.
Protini™ Polypeptide Moisturizer delivers soft, bouncy, revived-looking skin via signal peptides (amino acids that bind moisture to the skin), pygmy waterlily (antioxidants that moisturize, calm, and soothe), and soybean extract (restores vital nutrients).
17.Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb quenches dry skin's thirst for moisture with its lightweight gel formula containing lady's mantle (to nurture), ceramides (to retain water), glycerin (to maintain moisture levels), and more.
18.The Ordinary Peeling Solution 30ml AHA 30% + BHA 2% targets textured skin and fine lines. It resurfaces your skin with a mixture of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid. The first two are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that exfoliate the skin's outer layer while the last one, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), reduces pore congestion.
19.Acure Ultra Hydrating Green Juice Cleanser cleans deep in your pores, combining antioxidant-rich ashwaganda, skin-softening reishi, stress-fighting holy basil, vitamin-packed kale, rejuvenating melatonin, and soothing hemp seed oil.
20.CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion is a dream for anyone with sensitive skin. It provides long-lasting hydration, absorbs quickly, helps restore the skin barrier, and holds a seal of acceptance from the National Eczema Association.
21.Fenty Skin Start'rs Kit are Rihanna's three skin must-haves...so you must have them too! This three-step system comes with Total Cleans’r (a cleanser made with Barbados cherry and coconut-derived cleaners), Fat Water (a do-it-all toner that brightens, smooths, and prevents shine), and Hydra Vizor (a 2-in-1 lightweight moisturizer with SPF).
22.The Ordinary "Buffet" earns its holy grail status by treating dryness, dullness, and uneven texture with a plethora of peptides to boost collagen and keep the skin feeling bouncy and elastic.
23.CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser gently cleanses and provides up to 24 magical hours of moisturized skin. It's fragrance free and has a rich and creamy lotion-like texture, so washing your face will definitely feel luxurious.
26.First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser babies your skin with calming ingredients like aloe and allantoin. Makeup, dirt, and grime will flow off your face and down the drain, leaving behind only soft, balanced skin.
27.Laneige Water Sleeping Mask solves your dry, dull skin woes. Orange flower, rose, sandalwood, and primrose extracts restore much-needed hydration so you wake to reenergized skin.
